My idea of a CAS vintage card






I absolutely love Cameo's but always struggle with vintage cards so decided to make a CAS card using the lovely wooden cameo that I purchased the other day, I just love this Cameo and couldn't wait to use it on my cards. I made this card for my friend who recently opened up a creative space, I gave it to her on Saturday at the  opening and she loved it.

Believe it or not the background is actually turquoise, no matter how I tried to get the colour right in the photo it didn't work and so I just gave up and so here is my blue, apricot and gold card. I printed the turquoise square directly onto white card stock, added the sentiment and the the apricot digital frame. The gold chipboard oval was a completely different colour that I stamped gold, stuck to the card and and added the cameo to the top of the oval, I drew on the gold necklace and lastly added the pearls to the card.

The challenges I have included-
Moxie Fab World-Tuesday trigger:"A" is for apricot, influenced by the colours and the ornate gold design on the plate.
For your inspiration-FYI Challenge #25, influenced by the colours and the striking architecture.

After many attempts I am finally one of the Trigger targets for this card over at Moxie Fab :) :)
